24-Hour Quiet Hours are in effect in all residence halls at the end of each semester/session during exam periods, beginning the evening of the last day of classes. Please be respectful of others in your building and cooperative with your neighbors and staff if asked to quiet down. Please be aware that the staff will be referring noise violators through the Office of Student Conduct.
Residence Halls will close for December Break on Saturday, December 17 at 10 p.m. Information about requesting a late stay or Interim Housing for December Break is available on our Breaks and Early/Late Stays page.
If you are requesting late stay, you will need to vacate your room no later than the check out time indicated based on your request. If you are in your room later than the check out time on the date you have requested, you may be charged a $150 late check-out fee.
Fall 2016: If you will be changing rooms for Winter Session or Spring 2017, keys must be returned to the location at times designated by your Residence Hall Coordinator before you leave campus.
For December Break, all students living in traditional residence halls must turn in their keys to Residence Life & Housing staff in their buildings.
For Spring, all keys must be returned to the location at times designated by the Residence Hall Coordinator before you leave campus. Your ONEcard (your ID card) will be deactivated at end of the checkout period unless you have made prior arrangements. You will be billed if you fail to return these items to the designated location before you leave campus.
The following information pertains to students moving out at the end of the academic year and also for students who will be changing rooms for the following semester/session:
• Reassemble all University furniture and place in its original location.
• Replace screens, hang drapes and leave drapes open.
• Remove all personal belongings. The University cannot store personal belongings or guarantee their security. You will be billed for removal or special clean-up of personal belongings.

• Thoroughly clean personal bathrooms and kitchens.
• Return all lounge furniture to its proper location.

The final check-out service provided by Residence Life & Housing staff is extremely important to you for both financial and for convenience reasons. Each RA will conduct a pre-closing meeting to provide specific instructions. Please attend!
To prevent damage billing or trash removal charges you must see an RA prior to your departure to have your room inspected. Facilities management staff makes final billing decisions for damage or trash removal in individual rooms and apartments. Billing for common areas such as bathrooms, hallways, lounges, etc. will be equally divided among residents if the parties responsible are not identified. Billing will be sent out during the summer.
For Fall move out, if you have rented a refrigerator, microwave or combo unit and you are changing rooms and you want your rentals to move with you, you should contact the rental company to best understand your options. You must notify the company with your new address for their records so they know where to pick it up in the spring; otherwise a fee may be assessed. Go to www.mymicrofidge.com and click on the “Service” link. Requests should be made before the end of the semester.
For Spring move out, if you have rented a refrigerator, microwave or combo unit, please leave it in your room.
If you have moved or transferred the unit please email Campus Specialties, or visit their website; otherwise a fee may be assessed. If the unit cannot be found, you will be billed for a replacement unit.
Units will be picked up after buildings have been closed.
To avoid additional cleaning/damage charges, units must be:
1. Left inside your room: Placed unit in the middle of the room away from personal property.
2. Have no personal items on or in the equipment (stereo equipment, books, stickers, magnets, food).
3. Fully defrosted: (defrosting takes 24 hours) Do not use any sharp objects to defrost the unit. Empty the drip tray under the freezer compartment.

5. Returned with all parts: Ice cube trays, shelves, microwave plate and ring.
6. Left with the refrigerator and freezer doors open.
Failure to comply with any of the above criteria will be reasonable cause to charge a $25 cleaning fee.
